After the introspective experience of davening (praying) together during Shabbat morning services, Kiddush gives all members of the community an opportunity to socialize informally – a time to catch up with old friends and make new friends. After all, there’s no better way to cement a community than sharing a meal together.

Kiddush takes place every other week. For the full calendar of kiddush dates, please see our events calendar.

Covid-19 Policies:
We remain committed, as always, to balancing the importance of in-person communal gathering with mitigating the risk of spreading Covid-19. After consultation with our Health Advisory Board, the In-Person Planning Committee, and the Community Engagement Committee, and with the blessing and approval of the Board of Trustees, we will be offering individually packaged kiddush containers with the option to eat together in Bennett Park or to take the food and enjoy it from the comfort of your own home. 

After shul, there will be tables set up outside of Hebrew Tabernacle where you can grab your “kiddush to-go” box. When collecting your box, please keep your mask on as people will be congregating closely together and we have community members who are at a higher risk of severe Covid-19. Once everyone has collected their boxes, Rabbi Guy or another member of the community will make kiddush in the southeast corner of Bennett Park near the chess tables.

At our outdoor events, masks are optional, but should always be brought along. Please take care to respect each other’s different risk levels and needs for distance. If you are unsure, please ask and communicate freely!

**Please note: All Kiddush requests must be made at least a few weeks in advance of the desired Kiddush date**
